Shanghai Iceberg

Project Overview

Status: Project

Inspired by the 3 states of water - vapour cloud, liquid water and translucent ice, the Shanghai Iceberg is intended to intrigue and attract visitors along the south banks of the Huangpu River, creating a new destination felt to be missing along a riverfront walk experience.

A façade of translucent surfaces glisten in the sunlight, shaping itself into a bridge spanning the entrance. Visitors ascend onto a rooftop bar and dining terrace overlooking a waterfront park. At night the mystery of the iceberg is discovered - the sound of falling water entices people to experience a night life below the water line.
